"It came to me the other day, while reading about how our government leaders don't want to let the pilots on our commercial aircraft carry firearms, to consider how many police officers would show up for work if they were told they could no longer bring any firearm for protection of themselves and others? I bet you wouldn't get very many to show up for duty."

" 'Ruby Ridge' used to refer to a geographical location in the state of Idaho, but after an incident that took place there ten years ago today, the phrase has come to refer to a scandalous series of events that opened the eyes of many people to the inner workings of the federal government, including the vaunted Federal Bureau of Investigation. Now that ten years have passed, the feds will accelerate their ongoing effort to 'move forward' and have the scandal declared 'ancient history.' "

"Virginia Attorney General Jerry Kilgore is considering whether to allow Virginians who are lawfully entitled to carry concealed weapons and who, in order to get their permits, have already undergone both extensive background checks as well as gun-safety courses to do so in state parks. Currently, it is unlawful even for those who are entitled to carry concealed weapons to carry them into state parks."

"A former Minneapolis police officer who admitted having sex with a 13-year-old can't be charged with soliciting because the girl's words and conduct led to the sexual activity, the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday."

"Koenig, who was fired by the Minneapolis Police Department in December, has said he didn't know the girls were juveniles." [A very 'mature' 13 year old, right?]

In Minneapolis only an officer can carry a firearm. Talk about double standards!

NYPD says more than half of their 24,000 Glocks "are subject to jam without warning"

"More than half of the Police Department's handguns are subject to jam without warning, a potentially dangerous flaw that can leave the weapons as 'useless as paperweights,' police sources said."

"Although the jamming is rare, the NYPD has been concerned enough to order a recall of 24,000 semiautomatic Glock handguns so they can be refitted."

"This problem affects the Glock Model 19S - the gun carried by about 60% of the department's 39,000 officers. The flaw, in which the shell casing fails to eject, has only arisen during practice and tests at the NYPD firing range, police officials say." [They worked fine against Amadou Diallo.]

"Our studies have shown this to be a rare occurrence," said police spokesman Chief Michael Collins. "In the worst-case scenario...we estimated that this has happened only once in 450,000 times when fired."

Glock sent people to New York to address the issue. See report for details.

"No one has a moral, civil or legal right to violate your person or property. Let them know you're not someone to be taken advantage of. Try to let the attacker know he's picked the wrong person to mess with," [Maj. Ed] Welch said.

"While passive resistance may sometimes be the best defense...many alternatives exist..."

"The goal is to hurt him enough to give yourself a chance to flee."

"Weapons were a brief topic...keys, pens, fingernail files, credit cards or small cans of mace..."

But, of course, not the most effective, most efficient, most affordable, most concealable and easiest to use self-defense device ever devised: the handgun.

Keep in mind that secrecy shrouds the program and those who are speaking out are doing so at great risk. It appears they have no 'whistle blower' rights and are bound by top-secret clearance requirements. It is reported that more than eighty officers have resigned and some have filed a class action suit alleging that the program actually puts passengers at risk."

"Police said the girl and her mother were attempting to flee their apartment after the intoxicated boyfriend had ransacked it in a fit of rage."

Aurora, IL: A 17 year old man was shot. Police believe a gang member shot him in a case of mistaken identity.

Submitter's comment: Not shot by a family member. No gun lock would prevent this. The shooter committed a class 4 felony having an uncased/loaded firearm in IL. Police were not there to prevent this. 911 could never have responded fast enough. No new laws would stop this. Questionable if extra police would help. We need militia citizen involvement and RKBA!
